Also...this is why I review!
I recently read and reviewed Collision by Berinn Rae, she posted this on her facebook page today:
"Wowza! This early review of COLLISION (coming out July 30 but up for pre-buy now) by Ashley Byland of Step Into Fiction seriously made me squee! SQUEEEEEEE!

This is why I love to review and why I love indie authors!!!


Well, things have been interesting the past few days. I will spare you all the tmi information but I had a doctors appointment today, and things gladly went better then expected. We are still trying to work out one problem, but it isn't going to really turn into anything too serious, so I'm pleased we will eventually figure it out. One big reason I was scared, wasn't as big as I thought, thank god! But needless to say, I still feel physically the same way I did prior to the doctor so that part blows. Onto books!

I've read a lot of books this month. It may not seem a lot to others, but with an almost 19 month old, my reading time is very limited. I also read more then 1 book at a time. People still always ask me how I can do this. Simple, all the stories are very different, therefore I don't mix them up. I am currently trying to focus most of my attention on Lucid, and its getting very interesting, and making me not want to stop. I am also reading 2 other books, Döckálfar by Saga Berg and Intangible by J. Meyers. Döckálfar is a novella, so that is already half way done. And I actually have yet to start Intangible quite yet, haha. But I am loving this book read a thon I am on!!

I'm still trying to find more ways I can make money while staying at home with Riley. I'm still waiting to do more book covers, but I'm afraid not that many people know about me yet. So hopefully something will pop up soon so I am able to stay home with Riley more!!

Trying on dresses

So today, I went with my mom and brother's fiance and her friend and step mom to look at wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. We got to David's Bridal at 10 am right when they opened and it didn't take too long for them to get busy, sadly a lot of the dress's Heather wanted to try on they didn't have but when she finally found one she liked, we all were like "Ahhhh". I'm not going to say much more because I don't want to give anything away to my brother ;)

Rachel and me and both bridesmaids so we looked at the dresses to see what we liked. We had a few picked out and the first one we both tried on, we loved. Easy peasy! So comfortable, and I'm in the same size I was for my best friends wedding, so that makes me feel good, though the style is much different, but pfft, same size! yay!! I'm really going to try to start to work on my arms though. Rachel and I both have things we want to hid, lol also Heather, so we are all gonna start to do some work outs!! Either way, we are all gonna look amazing, especially Heather, and it's going to be on kick ass wedding!! If you know my brother, you know this is true, hehe.
